She will become one of the world's greatest heroes: WONDER WOMAN. But first she is Diana, Princess of the Amazons. And her fight is just beginning. . . .
Diana longs to prove herself to her legendary warrior sisters. But when the opportunity finally comes, she throws away her chance at glory and breaks Amazon law—risking exile—to save a mere mortal. Even worse, Alia Keralis is no ordinary girl and with this single brave act, Diana may have doomed the world.
Alia just wanted to escape her overprotective brother with a semester at sea. She doesn't know she is being hunted. When a bomb detonates aboard her ship, Alia is rescued by a mysterious girl of extraordinary strength and forced to confront a horrible truth: Alia is a Warbringer—a direct descendant of the infamous Helen of Troy, fated to bring about an age of bloodshed and misery.
Together, Diana and Alia will face an army of enemies—mortal and divine—determined to either destroy or possess the Warbringer. If they have any hope of saving both their worlds, they will have to stand side by side against the tide of war.
Synopsis from Chapters.Indigo.ca
I’ve been a comic book fan for years, and was incredibly excited when I found out that DC comics was asking four YA authors to write origins novels for specific hero’s. AND THEN I found out who those authors are, including none other then Leigh Bardugo, one of my favourite authors...my excitement was at a high! I did read this book last year and gave a simple review of it on Goodreads, but with Marie Lu’s Batman just out, I realized that I really wanted to write a full review of Wonder Woman: Warbringer. So here it is!
What I Liked:
I honestly adored the way Bardugo built this new Wonder Woman world and would love to see more of it in the future. I'm pretty much these are meant to be stand-alone's, but I would love to read more if she was allowed to build a series around Diana; to see Wonder Woman join the human world again, to get to see more of Alia, Nim, and Theo...well, it would be amazing.
For anyone who enjoys comics, the story of Wonder Woman, or just wants to read about strong female characters, this is a great book and one I would highly recommend.
FINAL RATING: 5/5
Hi, I'm Alexandra! I love reading (largely YA fiction, but sometimes I'll read "adult" books), playing board games, Nutella, and binge-watching TV shows on Netflix with my husband.
